Joshua. E: Term 2 Proud Moments

Joshua. E: Term 2 Proud Moments
1. I am proud of how well my science fair board turned out.
2. I am proud of how well my explanations turned out.

Joshua. E: Science Fair Question

Joshua. E: Science Fair Question
My science question was do enzymes in washing powder actually work. I assume that they will because they increase a chemical reaction. I chose this because I was wondering if it is worth the extra money to buy washing powder with enzymes. 

Josh. E: Statistics Learning

Josh. E Statistics Learning
I found it mainly pretty easy except for the college students' heights. I mainly found this hard because I couldn't remember how to do a stem and leaf graph at first. The summer births was ridiculously easy I did it in about 2 minutes. The when were you born sheet was simple but not quite as simple as summer births but still was very simple. I got a bit confused by the Ice cream and tempratures but I think I got it right.

Joshua. E: The Plasctic Cycle

Joshua. E: The Plastic Cycle
Have you ever thought how do they recycle plastic? Well I’m about to explain how they do. They make it with Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) chips. The (PET) chips are created by combining modified ethylene glycol and purified terephthalic acid.

First when it just gets to the factory which can be found in almost all the major production countries in the world including China and America. Once there they go down a conveyer belt or carried depending on the country a ultra-violet light detects contaminants which require removal. It soon goes through a grinder to make smaller chunks of plastic.

Then goes through a machine called a paper separator which tumbles the (PET) chips in a small amount of water the paper floats to the top and runs through a pipe. The (PET) chips go down a separate pipe into the water bath. The water bath cleans off almost all of the contaminants.

After leaving the water bath the (PET) chips go to the rinse bath to be dried. Then finally the (PET) chips reach the final stage of being heated and sent off. The (PET) chips get heated and (usually) shaped into bottles and get sent off.

The machinery in the factory puts off so much smog that in a day it weighs about 5 KGs. If one of these processes were skipped accidentally (Or on purpose) it could leave the user sick. This must be stopped so that the ozone layer will stay intact.

Thames

The beaches sand sticks to my dripping feet clinging tight. The water cools my burning body. The beach at Thames is a beautiful place to be.

You can fish there for only seconds and you will get a bite. The fish are not small and are good enough to eat. They are tender and delicious.
The people are very kind and helpful there. If you need directions just ask they will say.

Snow recount

At The Snow
I finish strapping on. I go. Everything becomes a blur. I turn my snowboard to slow down. I did it. Now I am able to  see what I am able to see what I am passing. I'm there.


I spot kayden and yell”Hi Kay…” Smack! My face hits the snow. Kayden laughs out “That was hilarious.” “But Painful .” I mutter to myself as I pull my face out of the snow leaving a face print.I take a shoe off the snow board and pat over the hole with my snow board we hop on the ski lift and get half when it stops after what feels like 24 hours. After having agonizing pain from having dangling snow boards on our legs we reach the top.

To go down the  slope again. Swerving between people me and kayden reach the bottom to have to face the agonizing pain of  of going up the ski lift again, We reach the top and ride down but kayden almost instantly falls over “Haha” I laugh mockingly.
